Paul Millsap struggled in 24 minutes of action vs. the Pistons, making 1-of-7 shots to finish with four points, four boards, four assists and two steals.
The Hawks were expected to rest some players tonight but coach Mike Budenholzer changed his mind at the last minute, perhaps influenced by Atlanta's light upcoming schedule -- they play just once in the next six days (vs. the Nets on Saturday). Every starter played exactly 24 minutes, being subbed in and out as a unit tonight, and fantasy owners must brace themselves for similarly messy boxscores over Atlanta's final seven games.

Paul Millsap scored 15 points during a 101-88 win against the Bucks on Monday with nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and one turnover.

He rested on Saturday and will likely rest again on Tuesday in Detroit. Millsap has been fantastic throughout the season, but all the DNPs are going to annoy his fantasy owners. The Hawks have four remaining road games this season and Millsap could miss some to all of them.
Mar 31 - 1:15 AM

Paul Millsap (rest) will not play against the Hornets on Saturday.

It's rest for Millsap and he's going to be sitting more in the future. The Hawks have another road game in a back-to-back set coming up on Tuesday in Detroit, so expect Millsap to sit in that game, as well. With Sapper out, Mike Muscala will likely start while the Hawks could use some stretch fours in Austin Daye and a couple other options.
Mar 28 - 3:38 PM

Paul Millsap scored 19 points on 8-of-16 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds, three assists, four steals and two blocks in Friday's loss to the Thunder.

Millsap was great as usual and he's turning in a top 12-14 season so far. DeMarre Carroll scored 15 points with one trey, and Al Horford (10 points, 5-of-7 FGs, 11 rebounds, four assists, one block) and Jeff Teague (11 points, four rebounds, three assists, three steals, one trey) both got things moving in the right direction.
Mar 21 - 2:06 AM

Paul Millsap had 16 points, nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on 6-of-14 shooting in Wednesday's blowout loss at Golden State.

The Warriors crushed the road-weary Hawks tonight, but Millsap at least showed up, unlike teammate Al Horford.
Mar 19 - 2:13 AM

Paul Millsap, Jeff Teague and DeMarre Carroll will all be rested for Sunday's matchup with the Lakers.

The Hawks are sitting pretty atop the Eastern Conference and coach Mike Budenholzer is fraying the nerves of fantasy owners by resting his key players with increasing frequency. Tonight's rest isn't surprising as it's the first game of a back-to-back set and the Hawks should still roll over the Lakers -- anyone who owns Al Horford or Kyle Korver should be on red-alert for a potential DNP vs. the Kings on Monday.

Paul Millsap scored 23 points on 10-of-18 shooting (including three treys) with nine rebounds, three assists, three steals and three blocks in Friday's road win over the Suns.

Millsap has been a mid-second round play when on the floor this season and when you factor in games played he's almost a first round guy. DeMarre Carroll added 11 points with five boards and a steal but no threes, Al Horford had a mild night with 12 and seven to go with two steals, Jeff Teague managed just eight points and nine boards, and Kyle Korver continued his likely hot streak with 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting with three treys in the win.
Mar 14 - 12:58 AM

Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll will not play against the 76ers on Saturday.

It's scheduled rest for the Hawks and Millsap should be fine for Monday against the Kings. The Hawks don't have another back-to-back set until Mar. 15 and have two more after that the rest of the season. Millsap has been productive in his last five, averaging 17.8 points, 7.8 boards, 1.8 steals and 1.4 treys. Expect Mike Scott to step up the most tonight even though he may not start.
Mar 7 - 5:46 PM

The Hawks may rest players on Saturday against the 76ers.

They rested Al Horford, Jeff Teague and DeMarre Caroll last Saturday, so conventional wisdom suggests Paul Millsap and Kyle Korver are going to sit tonight. If that's the case, we'll likely see Kent Bazemore and Mike Muscala slide into the starting lineup. Mike Scott would also see a nice bump in playing time.
Mar 7 - 5:24 PM

Paul Millsap scored 22 points against the Heat on Saturday with five rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

His fantasy owners will want to keep their eyes peeled for an upcoming DNP due to rest. Looking at the schedule, the Hawks have another back-to-back coming up next Friday and Saturday, so Millsap owners will want to be on alert there. Millsap continues to stuff the stat sheet, but he's actually only been a mid-round guy since the break because of his struggles at the line recently. He's a top-25 player going forward.
Feb 28 - 10:18 PM

Paul Millsap scored 20 points on 8-of-17 shooting (including four threes) with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in the Hawks' 95-88 win over the Magic on Friday.

Not only are the Hawks fun to watch but Mike Budenholzer is all about a nice, tight fantasy rotation. DeMarre Carroll added 15 points, three treys, eight boards, two assists and three steals, Al Horford went for 17 and 13 with four assists and two steals, Jeff Teague went for 17 and seven, and Kyle Korver hit 2-of-5 shots (all threes) for eight points, three boards, one steal and two blocks in the win.
Feb 28 - 12:26 AM

Paul Millsap blew up for 23 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in Sunday's road win vs. the Bucks.

He made 10-of-20 field goals including one 3-pointer and his efforts helped the Hawks snap a rare two-game losing streak. Millsap has maintained top-20 value all season, which is exactly where fantasy owners hoped he'd be on draft day.
Feb 22 - 6:12 PM

Paul Millsap will replace Anthony Davis (shoulder) in the Shooting Stars competition.

Millsap's participation in this meaningless event would suggest that the minor hand injury he suffered during Wednesday's game will be a complete non-issue moving forward.
Feb 12 - 6:08 PM

Paul Millsap suffered a minor right hand injury on Wednesday, finishing with 11 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals on 3-of-11 shooting.

He played through the hand problem and it shouldn't be a big deal going forward, but probably contributed to his poor shooting tonight.
Feb 11 - 10:53 PM

Paul Millsap struggled vs. the Grizzlies' defense, finishing Sunday's defeat with four points on 2-of-10 shooting, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks.

Millsap took a hard elbow from Marc Gasol that caused him to use an icepack on his head and neck during timeouts, but the injury shouldn't threaten his status for Monday's game in Minnesota. His owners should take this poor game in stride -- it's the first time since mid-December that Millsap has been held to single-digit points and it came against a tough Memphis squad that ranks ninth in defensive efficiency.
